One Day at the Court of Tsar Alexey Mikhailovich
by Irene W. Galaktionova

The 1645-1676 reign of Tsar Alexey Mikhailovich, the second Romanov on the Russian throne, was one of the most fascinating periods of Russian history. Throughout his lengthy term on the throne, Tsar Alexey strove to combine the "good old" Russian lifestyle with the newest progressive influences coming from the West. As a result, Tsar Alexey's rule was anything but boring: an eclectic mix of old and new where witch doctors rubbed shoulders with expert physicians, where daring adventurers challenged archaic political ideas and where religious ceremonies were interspersed by the latest scientific experiments and theatre performances.

The Tsarina’s and Olga’s Islands at Peterhof
by Tatiana Burkhova

The Tsarina’s and Olga’s Islands are situated on Olga’s Pond, a part of the Colonists’ Park created at Peterhof by Emperor Nicholas I in 1837-48 on the place of a hunting marsh. Tsarina’s Island with a pavilion created by the famous Russian architect Andrei Stackenschneider in 1872 in imitation of villas of the ancient Pompeii, was the Emperor’s gift to his consort, Alexandra Feodorovna. Olga’s Pavilion, resembling towers of southern Italian villas (architect Andrei Stackenschneider, 1846-48), was the Tsar’s gift to his daughter, Grand Duchess Olga Nikolayevna, for her wedding with Prince Charles of Württemberg.
